Shakru is five-years-old and will soon start school. Shakru was diagnosed with bilateral cryptorchidism (otherwise known as undescended testis - where the testis remain in the abdomen rather than the scrotum) and he needs to have an orchidopexy to correct it. An orchidopexy is a straightforward operation with a good success rate and is typical of the high-impact, low-cost surgery we fund. Without surgery he is at greater risk of testicular cancer, testicular torsion and fertility problems later in life. The surgery is beyond the means of his family so the doctors have approached Humanity Direct to see if we can find a donor to cover the costs.
